Great Lakes Now Connect has produced a 30 minute special Great Lakes Now Connect: Food Supply that will air Thursday, August 7th at 8:30pm on Detroit Public Television WTVS Channel 56.
As the summer’s harvest floods into farmers markets around the Great Lakes basin, this special will take an in-depth look at the linkage between agricultural production and the Great Lakes. Hosted by Christy McDonald, the program will feature some of the best in-depth reporting on Great Lakes issues produced by Detroit Public Television and by public television stations and journalists around the basin.
One of the interviews includes Senator Debbie Stabenow (D) discussing her latest and most unique farm bill. In the interview, Stabenow explains how the ‘Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2014’ will encourage the flourishing urban and community gardens and farmers market while promoting organic food sources.
